That's fantastic. I'm assuming this is for IPython Notebook?

I doubt adding IP-specific stuff to clrzmq will be acceptable
upstream, so they'll have to be broken apart. Why can't ZeroMQ.Iron be
a separate assembly? In particular, it would be nice if that assembly
was not platform specific and could reference the various
platform-specific clrzmq DLLs. It appears that clrzmq uses different
DLLs for .NET and Mono, so choosing the right DLL to load
automatically could be interesting. It may make sense to maintain a
fork of pyzmq, but that depends on what upstream would be interested
in supporting.

This is a common problem (I would love to do the same for SQLite and
expat) so it would be nice to have an idea of what works and what
